With a smile and a swish of fhe skirt these girls are showing the rest of the students at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute how the can-can is done. It was part of French Week, which started Monday and wrapped up today at the LCI. The week was set up to get the students ''thinking French" and the effect was produced by piping French music throughout the school, serving French the cafeteria which was decorated like an outdoor restaurant with trees, canopes, and pillars. Special classes were also conducted on how to travel through Europe. By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer Lethbrxige and district cit- izens should be on the alert for dead and dying fowl which are infected with a virus during the up-coming summer and fall seasons, the Lethbridge regional fish and wildlife officer said Wednes- day. Frank SommerviUe says the virus is restricted to the U.S. at the present time, but is of specific concern to wild- life people here because the Lethbridge district is in the central migratory fly-way for waterfowl. An outbreak of Duck Virus Enteritis, better known a s duck ddsease, has been ns- ported as destroying an esti- mated waterfowl that were wintering at the Lake Andes National Wildlife Ref- uge in South Dakota. The virus is specific to ducks, geese and swans, is not transmissible to humans and is not known to affect other birds or animals. The disease is more com- mon in the male species and according to the Canadian review Radio orchestra thftRT STUDIO ON FIFTH GALLERY 1 I PICTURE FRAMING 1 1 1958 f 7JO 5 AVE LETH6RIDCE-ALTA HEINO DEEKEN Manager 3 residents remanded Three Lethbridge residents each charged with possession of a dangerous weapon re- served plea and were remand- ed Wednesday to May 23.

Lethbridgt, By PAT ORCHARD The Vancouver Radio Or- chestra, conducted by John Avison, gave a superb per- formance at the Yates Me- morial Centre Wednesday evening. The evening began with Rossini's overture to The Italian Girl in Algiers. This overture began with a beau- tifully hushed string passage followed by a gently moving 'tune on the oboe, enchanting- ly played by Warren Stan- nard, and then on the flute by Harriet Grassland. One must comment on the soft p i z z i cato accompaniment. The playing throughout was highly polished. The next number was Two Etudes for String Orchestra by Godfrey Ridout. The per- formance was dedicated to Sir Ernest Macmillan, the Canadian composer who died recently. The music evoked a hauntingly refined sense of inwardness from the players. Ths tons of the strings was consistently excellent, and made one wish that this com- poser's music were less of a rarity in our concert halls. PHENOMENAL The first half of the pro- gram concluded with Mo- zart's Linz Symphony. The slow movement was tenderly played, and conveyed the bitter sweet mood so typical of Mozart's later symphonies. The woodwinds played with 'tenderness and depth, amd the tone of the strings was SMILEY'S PLUMBING GLASS LINED WATER HEATERS INSTALLED Phone 328-2176 E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.) DENTAL LAB LTD. 204 Medical Dental Bldg. Phone 327-6565 always excellent. The min- uet had the necessary bounce, but could still be de- scribed as stately. The finale was a bubbling presto, yet played with the right degree of humor. The tonal beauty of the playing, as well as their shssr technical virtuos- ity, was phenomenal. The highlight of the eve- ning was the performance by George Zuckermann of Carl Maria Weber's Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra. Mr. Zuckermann has great stage presence, and his playing of this workhorse of the wood- winds was quite a revela- tion. We were exposed to the usually hidden potentialities of this instrument, ranging from the dexterous virtuos- ity of the opening and con- cluding movements to the lyrical cantabile of the ada- gio. The orchestra responded to Websrs sense of lively amusement as the perform- ance made the most of the bassoon's amusing personal- ity without ever mocking a noble instrument. SPRINGTIME The next number was On hearing the First Cuckoo by Delius. orchestra suc- ceeded in capturing the at- mosphere of springtime to perfection. The tone of the strings had some delightful moments of tranqulity, and Mr. Avison seized the to bring out a touch of brass, the result was thrill- ing. He conveyed to the full a sheorly physical joy in life. The final item on the sched- uled program was Bizet's Carmen Suite. The orchestra had the keen alert sound (typically Spanish) that Bi- zet had in mind when he wrote this miraculous score. The woodwinds were excep- tional, and the soft timpani beats, as well as the tam- bourine playing represented this evening were character- istic of Bizet's style. This was a most compelling account of the composer's masterpiece. The audience showed their enthusiasm by demanding two delightful encores. Wildlife Service 98 per cent of the diseased waterfowl re- ported since January have been males. The virus affects the co- ordination of t h e waterfowl in its late stages. The infect- ed birds will have difficulty in getting airborne and often can be seen circling or spin- ning wildly en the surface of the water. Bloody discharges from the vent and the bill of the wa- terfowl are another clinical sign of the disease. The Canadian Wildlife Ssr- vice reports ducks have died of the virus usually as- sume one of three positions: The neck is arched for- ward and the bill pro- jects into the ground or wa- ter. The neck may be arch- ed back, the tail feathers are fanned out and the kgs are extended backwards with the bottom of the webs exposed. The neck is twisted and partially extended over the back with the tail and legs resting in the same way as mentioned in the second po- sition. It is also not unusual to find areas of blood several inches in diameter where in- fected birds have been sitting. Males frequently exhibit a n extended and exposed penis and a severe bloody dis- charge from the vent is com- mon. To aid in the detection o f birds from the diseased Lake Andes Refuge, the Canadian Wildlife Service reports 91 free flying mallards were marked on the wings, back and tail with yellow paint and an additional 322 were marked similarly with red paint. With a view to minimizing the risk of spreading the dis- ease in this area, wildlife pathologists recommend that dead birds should not be opened or collected for exam- ination. Persons sighting a dis- eased bird should contact the fish and wildlife division In Lethbridge. There haven't been any dis- eased waterfowl reported in this area so far and will not likely arrive until late sum- mer.
